romney was breath-takingly dishonsest last night. mitt romney was more in control of the debate and walked all over jim lehrer and obama didn't fight back. obama had the facts and didn't use them, but this is what obama does. in 2008 when he ran against hillary clinton, people said he wasn't fighting hard enough and against john mccain and in the health care debate, he wasn't fighting hard enough. he won all the fights. >> what's interesting, our first team and others brought up the comparison of the incumbent curse. george w. bush, ronald reagan in '84, george h.w. bush in '92, the president didn't seem to be on his game. mitt romney made a surprise appearance to a cpac event in denver still courting the conservatives but say if you know people that voted for president obama, tell them to come on over to our side. that's ironic because i don't imagine he knows many conservative republicans who voted for president obama the last time or plan to this time. nevertheless, you're no fan of governor romney. did you become a fan last night as a conservative who has doubted his credibi
of the night. at one point mitt romney told the president point blank that if elected, he would repeal his health care law to which the president responded by saying, but we've seen this model work really well in massachusetts. here's part of that exchange. >> i want to take the $716 billion you've cut it and put it back into medicare. by the way, we can include a prescription program. but the idea of cutting $716 billion from medicare to be able to balance the additional cost of obama care is in my opinion a mistake. with regards to young people coming along, i've got proposals to make sure medicare and social security are there for them without any question. >> if you repeal obama care and i have become fond of this term obama care, if you repeal it, what happens is those seniors right away are going to be paying $600 more in prescription care. they're going to have to be paying copays for basic checkups that can keep them healthier and the primary beneficiary of that repeal are insurance companies that are estimated to gainle billions of dollars -- gain billions of dollars back when the
to declare a winner. the consensus seems to be that mitt romney was that last night. what put him in that position? >> mitt romney helped himself and came across as very energetic, he was concise, even funny in a lot of his answers. the format actually ended up benefiting him because you elevate the challenger. president obama has been campaigning with the air force one, being able to ride on air force one, having the presidential seal at his podium. now mitt romney was elevated to president obama's level. i was reminded in 2004 when john kerry was challenging george w. bush and we saw a similar debate performance where the challenger came out swinging, did very, very well. the incumbent president was a little bit on his heels mainly because sometime you're not used to being challenged by somebody in that type of setting. so we move to the next debate. it seems like mitt romney did very well on style, although substance might have been a different matter. >> speaking of substance, a lot of people thought this debate was more informative, but did these issues and ideas connect to t
me do my homework. >> mitt romney put his spin on the debates last night, as well, at a rally in denver. trying to frame how they would be judged. >> and what, in my view, it's not so much winning and losing or even the people themselves, the president and myself, it's -- it's about something bigger than that. these debates are an opportunity for each of us to describe the pathway forward for america that we would choose. and the american people are going to have to make their choice as to what kind of america they want. >> based on the latest cnn national poll we showed you, there is a lot at stake. the candidates within the margin of error on each other. sean spicer is the communications director for the republican national committee. he joins us now from the republican national committee headquarters in washington, d.c. and sean, do you agree with republican nominee mitt romney that the debate is not about winning and losing? >> well, i don't think it's about, you know, who scores the most points or not. it's about laying out a vision for where we want this country to go. t
tomorrow night. governor romney is going to be able to lay out very succinctly where he wants to take the country and his plans and policies. i think the president's going to be talking about blame and excuses as to why he wasn't able to get things done. even though he had a democratic congress for two years of his presidency. >> now -- >> he made very specific promises, john, in 2008, on that same stage when he was going after senator mccain about cutting the deficit in half. enacting a comprehensive immigration reform. closing guantanamo bay. >> let's talk about immigration reform. >> yeah. >> because mitt romney's been criticized, as well, for not being specific about his plans. and last night in denver, he may have made a little bit of news on his views on immigration policy specifically. he did an interview with the denver post, where he talked about the dream act or the waivers that president obama granted to kids born here in this country. and this is what governor romney said. he said the people who have received the special visa that the president put in place, which is a two
will not end up picking up the tab, than governor romney's plan may work for you. >> you're entitled to your own airplane and house, but not to your own facts. i' not going to cut education funding. >> a night of testy exchanges and harsh criticism as mitt romney and president obama try to show why they should win in november. good morning, everybody. i'm aaron gilchrist. >> and i'm eun yang. welcome to news4 today for this thursday. we're going to take a look outside at 5:00 a.m. 43 degrees. the humidity that came through the region made it feel like summer. >> 73. >> what did i say? >> 43. >> no, i'm sorry. 73, that's a big difference. >> it is going to be that cold by monday, though. >> what? >> indeed. it's going to be 30 degrees colder in the mornings by monday. big change on the way between now and then. ahead of another weak front coming our way. we have some passing light showers now moving out of the carolinas into virginia, the district, and maryland, parts of east and west virginia advancing north and east. a closer view of our storm 4 team radar. the wipers are running on 95 now
obama in gop -- and gop challenger mitt romney will face off in two hours. it is likely the biggest night of the campaign so far. the president gets the first question in a loosely- structured format. weeks of prep are coming down to this with a lot on the line for both candidates. we are live in denver to talk about some of the key talking points tonight. what can we expect to hear? >> we can expect to hear a lot about the economy. half of this debate is dedicated to that issue alone. and also expect other domestic issues, including health care as the role of government. what is unclear is what we will hear about controversies, everything from mitt romney's 47% comment to the video that surfaced just last night about the president talking about race and hurricane katrina. >> going into this debate, what to the numbers look like? >> president obama has an eight- point lead in the battleground state of ohio. he is up, but he is in a statistical dead heat in other critical states like florida and virginia. we will see if tonight moves those numbers. >> month after month after month, b
part of the "saturday night live" skit where the romney character -- who played romney again? i can't believe i forgot his name. sudak sudakis. sudakis playing romney. he's looking around wide-eyed going, what's going on? and romney was doing the same thing. where is barack obama? >> let's give romney credit. he's a tough debater. he was quick and he jabbed back. as soon as obama threw out that $5 trillion figure, he knew he was going to say, i have no idea what you're talking about. >> by the way, it does not matter now. between today and the next presidential debate. forget the vice presidential debate. it will matter. but it does not matter what happens on the campaign trail between now and the next debate. for most americans. they can run all the ads they want to run. and advisers can come out, call mitt romney a liar, if that makes him feel better. "the new york times" and every other editorial page can call romney a liar. it is all ground noise. what matters is if barack obama gets into that next debate, mika, and performs the same way again -- >> i want to see that again. tha
, president obama will speak at a park in denver, then fly fo wisconsin this afternoon. meantime, romney is headed to virginia for a ral lee tonight. they might be moving on, but many are rehashing last night's debate. the debate was make or break for mitt romney who appeared confident, commanding and in control. at times, it seemed a subdued president obama was less prepared allowing romney to steer the direction of the debate. many, including "meet the press" host, david gregory calling romney the clear winner. >> his proposal calls for a tax cut on top of $2 trillion of spending. >> everything he said about my tax plan is inaccurate. if the tax plan he described were a tax plan i was asked to support, i would say absolutely not. >> reporter: there's no time for rest. the senior advisers on the "today" show, early this morning. >> governor romney put more preparation into it than they did into the invasion of normandy. i expected a strong performance and got it. >> many were watching governor romney without 30 second attack ads. >> reporter: perhaps most evidence during the closing sta
or funny, it's not who you are, just be mitt romney, he'll have a good night. >> i think he'll have a good night. i'll tell you this also, mark mckinnon. we're going to hear about the 47% from barack obama tonight. he'll bring that up. i also think mitt romney will bring this up in the debate. something that was spoken yesterday in charlotte, north carolina, by our dear friend joe biden. roll it. >> the romney/ryan tax plan will raise taxes on middle-class families with a child, one or more children, by an additional $2,000 a year. how -- all kidding aside, with all the boos, look, guys, this is deadly earnest, man. this is deadly earnest! how they can justify, how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that's been buried the last four years, how in lord's name can they justify? >> god bless him. >> mark mckinnon -- i love him. mike, we love him. we love him! has anybody not told him, they've been in the white house for the past four years? buried? the middle class has been buried over the past four years. >> joe, i am being deadly earnest now, man. deadly earnest. okay? on how
